Spec wise, the new card features 480 stream processors, has 1GB of GDDR5 memory paired up with a 128-bit memory interface and supports up to six displays via DVI and two DisplayPort outputs, all thanks to Eyefinity tech. The new FirePro V9400 features support for DirectX 11, OpenGL and Shader Model 5.0 and has a maximum TDP of 75W.

As noted, the card will be available in select workstations but will also be sold as a standalone product with a $189 price tag.

What's professional about it? Come to think about it, what professional in his right mind would by this under performing card and its lousy drivers that come with it?

I'm an AMD fan this year but even i know nVidia's Quadro FX runninng cuda wipes the floor with this. Sorry, but its true!!

For a professional Video card they are sure using a cheap cooler. i give it a year before it fails with bad bearing's.

@megabad HD 6570 comes with both GDDR5 and GDDR3 , 6670 is only clocked higher than 6570 (800 vs 650 mhz)
Its the same chip, we dont know core clock of FirePro V9400, atleast it doesnt say here...

EDIT i just checked its 800MHz so ur right its HD 6670.
